Darkness will fall on you this fall and winter, but Thundercat’s bass guitar-led music can help you fight through to the other side. Start with “Them Changes,” a song of pain from this year’s album The Beyond / Where Giants Roam–with an excellent music video dramatizing the struggle.

Our own Mona Lee caught up with Thundercat outside the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle for some good old fashioned street modeling. We appreciate his way of dressing something like a couch potato samurai. Have you ever considered a winter sandal with a bomber jacket? We are, now.

Mona’s a writer at Nordstrom but we think you will agree, extremely nice with a camera.

Perhaps it’s been a second, or even a hot minute, since you looked into our offerings at the corner of athletics + leisure.

You know: athleisure.

Please allow us to guide you to The Rail, where the category is well-represented. We suggest paying special attention to the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Maxes, seen above, as well as everything camo and floral. Trust us: this is the summer of camo and floral.

Links to a few choice picks are below. Below that, the rest of our photo session with our guy Ben Randolph, seen here flexing in his SBs.

Not that you need to be able to skate to wear skate shoes–s/o this classic Onion article.

One particular vision of spring style we endorse: dressing like a Starburst Easter egg in adidas x Pharrell Williams gear. Just because the holiday’s over doesn’t make it wrong. There is something sublime and optimistic about this much color in one place.

It makes us want to turn up the volume on one of our favorite sublime and optimistic Pharrell songs.

No, not this one.

This one.

how to mix street and sport Whether fresh from kickboxing class, chilling on the weekend or stalking the streets in full-on health goth mode, athletic gear works out in a variety of life situations.

Fashion Week is a myth. Well, maybe more like a misnomer. While the seasonal proceedings in each global metropolis (New York, London, Milan, Paris) last approximately seven days, the cumulative tour spans more like a month.

Which is to say that Nordstrom’s traveling trend spotter, Crystal Nicodemus, is practically a decathlete. Amidst days on end spent fighting jet lag and jogging between the venues of every major women’s runway show, she still scores shot after killer shot of the world’s best dressed.

Keep reading for additional highlights from Crystal’s social anthropology of the female of the species in London and Milan (as observed on our sister blog, The Thread)—blue-haired mermaids, stiletto-clad cyclists and all.

Regarding the latter, keep reading to see our favorite female NYFW attendees (as spotted on our sister blog, The Thread)—women whose beauty, poise and personal style are rivaled only by their talent and intelligence as photographers, models, buyers and editors.
